The app itself is elegant and solidly designed. To enter a flight plan, simply type into the big, drop-down flight planning box your departure and arrival airports, and an alternate if you so desire. Mobile FD automatically loads those terminal charts for you, so there’s no hunting when you get to arrival mode. On my flight to Orlando and back home to Texas last week, I saw how powerful the planning function is as I typed in my flight plan, as cleared, including Victor airways and watched it come to life. More features are on their way, including a number of graphical flight-planning features, like rubber-banding, in which you drag your course line to a new waypoint to update the plan.
